Witch Way is the Candy ? Hallowe’en Card
Hello Everyone. My Favorite Things Witch Way is the Candy ? Stamp Set and co-ordinating dies are the stars of todays Hallowe’en card.
Ink to Paper:
Memories Black Dye Ink Pad was used to stamp the two pumpkins onto masking paper and then all stamps required in the desired placement onto watercolour paper to build a scene using MISTI to ensure a crisp image.
Masking works by stamping the images to be placed in the forefront first and working back from there. This meant the smallest pumpkin stamp had to be stamped first in the bottom left to centre on the watercolour panel.
After both pumpkins were stamped and masks placed onto both, the cat was stamped to look as though it was sitting on the smaller pumpkin. The masks were removed. The crescent moon was stamped next, the witch fit nicely in the right bottom edge , with the bat stamped out of the scene.
Watercolour with Scribble Sticks:
Dina Wakley’s Scribble sticks set 1 and set 2 were used to watercolour this card. Elephant, Sedona, Blushing, Cheddar, Evergreen, Marine, Olive, white, black, Umber, Lime, Tangerine, Magenta and Night Scribble Sticks were used. Daniel Smith Watercolor Stick ( Cadmium Yellow Pale for the moon, Sodalite Genuine and Lunar Black was added to darken the sides and bottom.
Die Cuts Using Gemini:
Hallowe’en themed pattern paper – from my stash – was cut to 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 ” ( 10.8 x 14 cm). Lawn Fawn’s Reverse Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Windows largest die was used to cut a window from the panel. The bat was cut and trimmed. A tree branch die – from my stash- was cut with black card stock.
Black 3 D Foam Squares were cut into four pieces and placed onto the back of the tree branch. The branch was placed over the watercolour card front panel ( from the top right hand corner to just above the bottom of the moon). The bat was adhered to the branch was an acetate braided dimensional strip and attached on both ends – to the bat and the branch – with micro glue dots. The Hallowe’en themed window was popped up with Ranger Foam Strips and placed over the front card panel. The branch was trimmed from the back of the panel.
A top fold portrait card base was cut 11-1/2 x 4-1/4 ” (29.1 x 10.8 cm) and scored at 5-1/2 ” (14 cm). Be Creative was applied to the card front. Black Fun Foam was cut to 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 ” ( 10.8 x 14 cm) and placed over the card front. Be Creative Tape was applied to the top of the fun foam. Finally to complete the card front, Be Creative Tape was applied in the opposite direction onto the back of the watercolour panel. The release backing was removed from the watercolour paper panel and placed onto the fun foam, burnishing the panel as requires.
Finishing the Card:
White Card Stock was trimmed to 4-1/8 x 5-3/8 ” (10.5 x 13.2 cm). A 4-1/8 x 1/2″ ( 10.5 x 1.9 cm) strip of Hallowe’en pattern paper from the front was attached to the bottom of the inside card panel.Memories Black Dye Ink Pad and a sentiment stamp”Hallowe’en Greetings” from Witch Way is the Candy ? Stamp Set was centred vertically but not horizontally. Three small bats – from my stash- were stamped above the sentiment. Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive adhered the card inside panel to the inside card base.
